True Brahmin

“Only a true Brahmin is a true Hindu. A true Hindu does not consider himself a Brahmin, true or otherwise. And to be a true Brahmin you need not be a born-Hindu. Not all born-Hindus are true Hindus. A true Hindu is one who does not consider himself as belonging to any identity be it based on age, gender, caste, creed, religion, race or nationality. A true Hindu is one who has understood Hinduism. And, Hinduism tells you you are not a Hindu or a Brahmin or what have you. A true Hindu knows all identities are different forms of the same Spirit and he is that Spirit. That is why Krishna says in the Bhagavad Gita, ‘The truly learned, with the eyes of divine knowledge, see with equal vision a Brahmin, a cow, an elephant, a dog, and a dog-eater’.”—D.
